District Apostle J Kriel surprised Ledig congregation in Rustenburg, near Sun City on 3 September 2017.

This surprise visit was not on the District Apostle’s monthly schedule as he is currently on leave. The Bible word used for the Friendship day divine Service was taken from Hebrews 10:25, which reads: ‘Not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.’

District Evangelist Jansen van Vuuren who was initially booked to conduct the divine service, accompanied the District Apostle. The Sunday School Children’s choir concluded the service with the hymn ‘Give me joy in my heart’.

Much joy was experienced by the 61 members in attendance, and after the service, the members took the opportunity to enjoy fellowship with the District Apostle.
